Or neither.

Omark would be a hell of a lot more useful on the PP than either Belanger or Jones.

And playing him ES at shotgun with Horc and Smyth wouldn't be so bad either. Or even with Paajarvi.

Would 3 ES scoring lines be such a bad idea?

Smyth Horc Hemsky
Paajarvi Gagner Omark

It's about asset management in a rebuild. If they trade him now, he won't get a return worth a 0.5 PPG producer as he was last year. If they keep hin buried in the minors, they lose him to Sweden for nothing. If they give him a bit of time to produce again, his value becomes much greater, and they either find a spot for him or they trade him for a piece that would be valuable in our rebuild.
